Sugar string basket
This sugar string Easter basket has big wow factor and couldn’t be simpler to make. You blow up a balloon, wrap it in crochet thread, and spoon sugar water over it until all the thread is soaked through. Leave it to dry, and when you pop the balloon, you get a little egg-shaped basket. Cut a hole in the side once it’s completely dried, and fill it with Easter treats. It’s a classier, less messy papier-mâché, if you will. Your kids will love peering inside to see what you’ve hidden. Check out Apartment Therapy’s sugar string basket DIY for the complete how-to.
